ATTENTION, EDITORS 1
The editors of the Atehleon Champion,
Topeka VvmmonKealtk and Kmporia AVir
will stand up ! Your education, gentlemen,
his been sadly neglected, Hmeutably so
touching the development and resources of
your own State. You, sin, are slow to learn
that the Kansas of ten ) ears ago cuts but a
small figure in the Kansas of to-day; and,
In the face of regularly published and au
thentic reports, it seems you can't compre
hend the fact that for eight) ear Sedgwick,
Sumner, JlcI'lierson, Cowley and Butler
counties bate led the entire State In the
production of all the leading staples, and,
that tbey continue to do so. You, reverend
seigniors, )ct imagine that Topeka is the
practical center of Kansas, when, in Tact,
that town is located within lite miles of the
northeast eighth or the State. And it is
not only, yourscltes, messieurs, who arc so
densely ignorant, but all of your people, In
cluding the State Hoard of Agriculture. In
wheat, corn, oats, bogs and cattle, take out
the counties named and your Kansas would
make a sorrowful show ing. Now, last wees,
the editor of this paper introduced a small
item of statistics ol the corn crop of Sedg
wick county Into an associate press dispatch.
The item was from tbo columns of the Ka"
CLE and was incorrect only in that it did
not come up to the actual figures. The item
has been made the target for the combined
wit of the antiquated trio whom tt care
now addressing. Y'ou hate our sympatb)
in so far an wc once belonged to your glu"
cofc soclet), and, also, for ten years pub
lished a paper in Northeastern Kansas, at
llurllugamc, when we knew as little of the
State as )ou do. to-day. The figures ttc
gate in that diciialth tveru of the easiest
elucidation So far as the conclusions
reached, the merest school-boy ought to be
capable oT figuring them out. bedgwick
county is nearly thirty by thirty-six miles
square. One-half or this vast area is taken
up by the tallc)s or the Great and Little
Arkansas and tho Ninnescah rhcrs three
or the finest ritcrs of the entire Stale run
ning through one ounty. Sedgwick coun
tj has has three hundred and twenty-tit o
thousand acres of t alley or bottom land, or
more than three times as much Lottom laud
asany other count) in the Stale, and it is
not surprising, or should not be, that she is
the greatest count) iuKaiiias. TheKtfiiE
has been reiterating this simple propo-illon
for twcltc years, but some people, Includ
ing the editors addressed and the State
Hoard of Agriculture, fccem,as )ct,to fail to
catch on. Now, In exact figures, this coun
ty makes suotn returns to inT,Ml acres of
corn for lbM. To pleiso these editors, and
te satisfy all doubters we will put the ater
age down to forty bushels to tho -icrc which
gites MfcO.010 bushels. As there arc 120
ears of torn of an at crage length of eiht
Inches each, in a bushel, we hate, as the
simplest proccis in figures, fVJGO.JIS, 100
inches, which, reduced to miles, will uot
only reach to London, but to the land w here
Jescph and his brethren went for corn. In
more senses than one is the Nile of America
the palingenesis of Kansas. The AVer-
quotes t o of our t erees tt lth ct Idcnt glee,
and quotes them wrong. We net cr claimed
that there wasnuypoetr) in thoetersis
but the AVfc man tt ill find in them more his
tory aud prophec) than Is usually put Into
a like space. The Champion' 1 1 cry funny
suggestion of stringing the grains together
hit the mark much closer than be was aw arc
In all probability. Astothc ComiiumueaUh't
suggestion that the stalks placed cud to end
would not reach the distance named, we
bate only to auswer that the stalks ol some
single fields of this couuty, placed end to
end, would reach that distance. Take a
200-acro f'lld and wo hate sctcialiuueh
larger, and four stalks ol eight tect each to
the hill, and 3,000 hills to the acre, and let
blui figure out where such a singlo field of
stalks will teach.
It is intimated abotc that the State Hoard
or Agriculture knows ol no county south
or the main line of the Atchison, Topeka A.
Sauta Fc railroad. Last tear, at the State
Tair, Sedgwick, Sumner and llutler made
magnificent displa)s, but the premium ttas
awarded to a count) whose productions for
tho years could hate been loaded into a few
ricks. If the society kicks at this we an-
sw cr by calling the people's attention to the
Tact that in their latent report, Issued last
week, iu giving tho list ot Tairs to be held
this fall tbey ieatc out thcScdgttick county
fair, one ol the oldest associations In the
Stale, owning fine grounds and extensite
improtcmcnls, aud which society offers
?.",000 in cash premiums this ) car.
AVc expect lo lite a great many j ears )ct,
but ttc uro satisfied the author of that dis
patch will not only be dad, but forgotten,
before the people of Northeastern Kansas
fully realise the richness, wealth and mag
nitude of the Lower Arkansas Valley.
The most terrific wind mid electrical
stonn occurred in this t alio) Tuesday night
accompanied by a tremendous rain fall. It
was the hardest blow since the spring of
'73, when so man) buildings were motcd
from foundations. At this writing we arc
unable to learn that any great damage ttas
done or thai there was tiny loss or lire, al
though ttc bate not )ct beard from tho
country and of the stiudlng crops. No
doubt many grain stacks were overturned
and w c lear that corn may havo been badly
broken dow n. Iu this city the shade trees
suffered greatly, especial!) tho catalpis aud
solt maples, the limbs of which bestrew
the streets. The walls ol Jlr.A.W.OIitcr's
new residence, which were up to the first
joists, were leteUcd. The outer course of
bricks being of a fine presed quality and
shipped from Kansas City here in straw,
the loss will be considerable. The walls or
J. L. Cooper's new lltery stable were
thrown out of line, and sctcral newly dug
cellars were filled with water. The gas
works no.v buildings sustained considera
ble damage. A brick bain was blown dowu
on the west side, and the roof of tho shool
houso In the First ward was torn tip. The
storm broke about 11 o'clock at night and
continued for otcr au hour, thorough!)
frightening a large number of people. Tho
rain continued much longer.
Jlr. J. T. Sherman, clerk of the United
Stales District Court for Wichita, took pos
session oT bis office last week since which
time he has been tcrt bus) aud will con
tinue to be very busy until the court sits.
He is also United States Commissioner, so
that his lime will be fully cmplo)cd. Set en
new land fraud cases were docketed last
week, and Capt. Drew, the special agent of
the Interior Department is still busy at
work in the western counties. Jlr. Sher
man, who Is a thoroughly competent gen
tleman and well versed In United States
Court proceedings, and who has been look
ing up the extent and character ol the
suits which will be tried at this point, says
his commissioner's court, which will be
continuous, will proto fully as important
to Wichita as the annual term. Mr. Sher
man Is a very pleasant gentleman socially
and our people tt ill take as naturally to him
as tbey did to Hon. Dick Walker. Capt.
Smith, the United States Deputy Marshal
for the Wichita court, was iu lonn on Sat
urday, but was off again to scrte some pa
pers In the south part of the Stato and in
Butler. He sa) set cry minute of his lime
will be taken up from now until Judge
Foster's gat el falls.
Some slashing blathcrsliite. who has been
trying to play editor on the Emporia AVtc
of late, lays himself out on a parallel of
Emporia and Wichita to our city's disad
vantage. The fellow talks like au escaped
lunatic If Emporia Is such a wonderful
town why don't she show up iu the statis
tics published by tbo Slate and National
governments. That Emporia beats Wichita
head otcr heels, in bonded indebtedness for
all Emporia has to show, everybody under
stands; and, that she has a balfdozcn mon
ey sinking institutions. Including a couple
of newspapers, that are a burthen to that
burtbened-to-death people, we hat e known
for a long time ; but, their last and greatest
affliction seems to bo the writer above al
luded to, and bo ought to be squelched.
TJJchita is the livestand most rapidly grow
Ins town in Kansas, a fact which, while it
cannot bo smothered down, is iine wWh
we are not called upon any longer to adver
tise. If the Eaguc prides itself upon one
thins more than another It is the way in
which it modestly refrains from blowing
about any thing connected with Wichita or

Ob, this is a selfish world. If the little
block or ground upon which one's little
home stands happens to be surrounded on
three sides by rich men and on the other
side liytheclty.thcrelsnorest. Eachof the
three will be eternally trying to buy strips
ol your ground and the city will threaten
to run a street through on the other side.
This Is a hard world on the man who is con

In religion as well as in everything else.
Your Infidel and skeptic neighbor will hold
you with his glittering eye while he pours
his poison into your ears only that he may
destroy that peace which comes ol your in

tionate Supreme Being ol Delight will final

which cannot be diminished by grasping
neighbors or hate a street run through it
by a hoglsh corporation.
THE MILLING CENTRE.
Topeka Is rapidly becoming the most im
portant milling centre in the State. Corn-
Atchison is, and will continue to be, the
great milling centre of the State. We now
hate four immense flouring mills that arc
running day and night, and will soon have
a filth in operation. More flour is manu
factured in twenty-four hours, than In any
other town in Kansas In a week. Atchiton
All of which simply shows that the two
editors of the above papers ought to tratel
more or read their exchanges. Wichita is,
and will continue to be, the great milling
centre of Ihe State. We hate lite immense
flouring mills running day and night, to
which fact we called the attention of the
Chrmplon once before this. The first mill
built here alone turns outi'iO barrels et cry
twenty-four hours, or about 100 barrels
more than the biggest mill in Atchison.
Sad Is the rito ol burying a stranger, but
sadder when that stranger's grave hides for
ctcr from sight the face or the only friend
and protector of two little lonely orphan
girls who shrink within thcmseltcs as the
sound or the heat ily falling clods strikes
terror and dismay to their souls. A num
ber of the members or the Grand Army ol

Intention to hold it in the new Christian
Church, but owing to the fact that the plas
terers did not get through in time, Mr.
Woodman's building (known as the Tarred
Store) on Main street, has been secured.
It is admirably suited to the purpose, more
central and contenlent. The ladles bating
it in charge hat c spared no labor to make It
a success and an honor to Wichita, and
they should be rewarded by a liberal pat
ronage. The exhibition will be open from
9 a. in. aud through the entire day and even

alone on exhibition, in addition to a rare
collection of art needlework, bric-a-brac,
relics and curiosities lrom every quarter of
the globe, old books three centuries old, a
fine geological collection, collections of rare
coins, etc., it will readily be seen that one

There will be refreshments, the best ice

Jlr. J. E. Caldwell was down from EmpoJ

Jlr. lllssantz has established an enterprise
that has long been needed In this city and
one which will probably be sustained from
the word go, and that is tbo manufacture of
gait anlzed cornice. Wc suggest the pro
prietors ol the New York block interview
him immediately. The machinery and tools
hate already becu received and a workman
engaged. The first Job will be the cornice
and caps of the uew Citizens Hank build

the design of cornice, Jlr. lllssantz is ready
to do the work.
ONE FIELD OF CORN.
As considerable criticism has been in
dulged in with reference to last week's
Eaulk'8 corn problem, Jlr. W. T. Jctvett,
one ol the oldest farmers, as he Is one of
the most reliable gentlemen in this county,
informs us that he has Si'i acres of growing
corn, aud that while he cannot state au av
erage Tor the county, he says he would not
take 18.000 bushels lor the corn he will husk
and crib from tho abotc field. Now go on
with jour music.
That protective farmer who was to have
cleaned out that free trade farmer, did not
get around with his article in time for this
Issue, being rcccitcd only an hour before
going to press. AVc might as well tell who
the gcnlle'mcn are. Hon. William Koss, of
the Kitcrside farm, is the protectionist,nnd
Farmer Doollttic is the fee trade champion.
The latter has sent iu his application to
the Cobdcn club, and is swallowing all the
speeches delivered on the free trade side in
Congress since the days ol Webster and
Jlr. Amos Tucker completed the census
of school children between the ages of five
and twentj-one years, on Monday, the Ctb.
The following Is the summary : First ward
'Hi males, 232 females ; total, 500. Second
ward, 193 males, 211 females ; total, 109.
Third ward. 1C4 males, 182 females; total,
34G. Fourth ward, 223 males, 247 females;
total, 470. East of the railroad, 27 males,
27 females ; total, 54, making a grand total
of 1,784 persons of school age.
1'crhsps the greatest disadvantage King
man is under to-day, and always has been.
Is that of not hat inga well-established stage
line connecting it with Wichita. The town
has always been tied to a little burg on Cow
creek whose business men have been a set
or leeches drawing the very life-blood from
Kingman's veins, when It should have been
chnnected with the live town or Wichita.
Give us a good stage Hue to Wichita.

Tuesday evening a company of thirty
young ladies and gentlemen assembled at
the commodious residence of Mr. and Mrs.
Rutan, who are the teachers of classes Nos.
5 and C of the M. E. Sunday school, and
who, on the previous Sabbath had invited
their classes to their home at this time.
With the above number tbc classes were not
fully represented. The company was form
ed into a large family circle on the front
lawn and the game of "fruit-basket" gayly
prosecuted. After an hour's amusement all
retired to the parlors where they were re
freshed with the most delicious cream and
cake and iruits. Several of the misses of
Mrs. Ilutan's class deftly touched the piano
keys and a few general choruses closed the
very pleasant etening. As the younger
ones went home light-hearted as they came
the older ones felt that the fairy angel
brought out by their teacher bad smoothed
a wrinkle of care from their burdened
brows. Long life and happiness to tbc gen
erous host and hostess.

Dear friends, as Congregationalists wo
purpose holding our meetings in Eagle Hall
ctcry alternate hunday till further notice.
The object of the above meetings Is to or
ganize a Congregational Church and settle
a suitable pastor oter that church here in
Wichita. Our purpose Is not to pull down
other churches but to build up one of our
own denomination, believing that Wichita,
tbc Queen City of the grand Arkansas y al
ley and the west, with a population oT near
ly 9,000, can afford to support another off
spring or the Pilgrim Fathers.
Dear friends will you not show your heav
enly heroism by aiding us as far as possible
with 'your presence and your prayers to
raise another banner for Jesus and another
standard against the spoiler of men's souls
and the great enemy of all righteousness.
All In sympathy with the movement, and
all who may desire to identify themselves
with a Congregational Church, are cordial
ly invited to attend. Be assured that a
Congregational minister will be settled here
at an early date, and wc want to pate the
way for bis arrival by organizing a church
as soon as possible that he may begin to
build thereon when he shall have located
We extend a hearty welcome to all, be
lieving that the end will be better than the
beginning. James Busker.
Another week has passed away with the
usual number ot changes incident to an In
stitute. We have increased from G2 to 123,
It being the largest number ever registered
in this county at an institute and notwith
standing we have bad good and successful
institutes before, yet there seems to be as
much interest in this as In any institute ever
held In this county.
We have a large number of experienced
teachers here that are alive and take an In
terest in educational mattets. That is very
commendable In them, for there are a nam
ber of teachers here that can get certificate!
without attending Institutes, but they coma
here and sacrifice time and money, not to
get a certificate, but to Increase their infor.
matlon or stock in trade. So that those
teachers should be appreciated, and I think
a change is apparent In that direction, for
sometimes we find a school officer that
makes a distinction.
The institute has become a part of our
school system. It is no longer an experi
ment, but a fact, well understood by our
best men as very important factor in the
make-up oi a successful teacher.
This week the Instructors and all the
members seem to have more life and aainta.
tlon, showing that a we progress the Inter
est does not fail. We had a lecture on pnya
iology by Dr. JIcAdaass. He bad a dry sub
ject, but for the time allotted to him he
made it plain to us, so that we were well
paid for the time spent.
Thursday we had Major Bear to explala
a subject that is very teportaat to all, bat
understood by very few : that Is the subject
ef surveying. He explained the manner of
